at the polls, president obama has been trending ahead by a few points when you look at a number of polls. that's not a comfortable lead for the obama campaign. but it is a significant one. it is a consistent one. and they're trying to maintain that as they move towards election day. and they try to keep wisconsin as well as the other midwestern firewall states, ohio and iowa, in their column, fred. >> and all this while the president says the recovery from the storm is still first priority. how is he trying to stay ahead of that, at the same time campaign to keep his job? >> that's right. it's a tricky line to walk because here he is three days out from election day. he has to be campaigning obviously, and that's the sense the obama campaign has, but he has to be careful, especially as some more bad weather heads to that very vulnerable region. the difference today not only is president obama staying in close contact with his advisers, with cabinet secretaries and with local officials in these storm effected areas, but he actually has members of his cabinet blanketing the effected regions, his
close presidential race. take a look at the latest national polls of the president obama has just a one-point lead among likely voters. three new swing state polls show the president still in the lead, although with a margin that is shrinking in florida, virginia and ohio. and instead of campaigning, the president went to the red cross in washington, d.c., yesterday. >> this is a tough time for a lot of people. millions of folks all across the eastern seaboard. but america is tougher. and we're tougher because we pull together, we leave nobody behind, we make sure that we respond as a nation and remind ourselves that whenever an american is in need, all of us stand together to make sure that we're providing the help that's necessary. >> mitt romney will resume a full campaign schedule today, stumping in florida. he held a disaster relief event yesterday in ohio. >> we've got people right now that are having some hard times because of this terrible hurricane and the storm that followed it, and your generosity will make a difference. so i want to thank you. >> i want to bring in usa today
. a just released cnn/orc poll shows obama ahead by just three points, well within the margin of error. an nbc/"wall street journal" poll shows a wider gap with obama leading by six points. president obama is about to speak at a rally in mentor, ohio. he is at least in the building, we understand. and so is our white house correspond dan loathian. the president's schedule is packed today. he isn't just campaigning. he is also keeping a close watch on the storm which he says really is his first priority. >> reporter: that's correct. white house officials saying that president did get updates, briefings overnight. this morning he went to fema headquarters in washington to get a briefing in person, to get a sense of what is taking place with regards to the flooding, the power situation. he had some of his top officials in the room with him. he also spoke via video conference with the governors and the impacted states. and again the president trying to stay on top of this situation, balance the storm and response to the storm with his campaign. and the message from the president to his top
poll also finds that president obama has a 12-point lead in the battleground states, where it matters. >>> i will come on "morning joe" are you sure you can fit in there? [ chuckles ] ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] around view monitor with bird's-eye view. nice work. [ male announcer ] introducing the all-new nissan pathfinder. it's our most innovative pathfinder ever. nissan. innovation that excites. ♪ >>> i will come on "morning joe" and i will shave off my mustache of 40 years if we lose any of those three states. >> welcome back to "hardball." that was david axelrod, famous for his mustache. he's with the obama campaign, sounding very bullish on their chances, obama's chance of carrying michigan, minnesota, and of course, pennsylvania. these three states haven't been given much time or attention by the media or the money spenders until lately. that's because the romney camp and their cohorts in the super pac world announce they're now going to start advertising there. they're pouring in over 4 million bucks in pennsylvania, 2 million in michigan, and about $1 million in minnesota. t
polls, how many does president obama lead in? 24 of the 24. every single one. and look at the rest of mr. romney's campaign schedule. he's taking the one trip to pennsylvania that republicans always take. but other than that, he was in ohio and wisconsin today. he was scheduled to be in new hampshire, iowa and colorado in the final days. and he just spent the last couple days in florida and virginia. that means the map is not expanding. not if you can't afford to walk away from any of your battleground states to move on to more exotic locales. he is still flogging it out in the places where he has to win. where he is not sure he is going to win. all of this we're going to win stuff, it is a fake. it is a fakeout. it is a bluff. it is trash talk. and there's nothing wrong with it. it happens every year. you should just know that it is a dependable part of the end of presidential campaigns. but every once in awhile at the end of a presidential campaign, this expected feint, this attempt at a fakeout that everybody knows is coming, every once in awhile it is revealed as a fakeout. every onc
president obama ahead by one point. 48-47%. a national poll. the poll in the state of colorado, the new international poll shows 15% of likely polls backing obama. that's within the sampling number. 49-45, also within the margin of error. now today, governor romney's camp said he will campaign in pennsylvania on sunday. they claimed the deep blue key stone state is in play. they said the same thing in a memo but didn't cite any particular data. the obama campaign called it a sign of desperation on their part. joining me now with the raw politics, chief white house correspondent, jessica yellin, and jim acosta and correspondent john king. >> the storm has been a real curveball for candidates. how has mitt romney been handling transitioning back to regular campaign mode? does he feel that it may have stopped his momentum? >> what we saw earlier from mitt romney, he went back on offense. after dialing back his criticism of president obama in the immediate aftermath of superstorm sandy, he went on the attack. he ridiculed the idea for the secretary and he unleashed this ad. a spanish langua
that bill clinton carried in '96 and that president obama carried. >> if that poll is accurate, romney will win florida for sure, if he's going to carry i-4 by that big a margin. most indications are that he's going to win the state. however, you have to point out, the obama campaign says they're competing in all the battleground states, and they are. the president's one event today is in florida with bill clinton, 10:00 this morning. >> going to be right in the middle of the i-4 corridor. >> right in the middle. they're competing there. they're not giving up. they're using their most precious asset today, one obama visit with bill clinton to go to florida. so they're not giving up, but there's no question romney has an edge there right now. >> you usually have, mika, north florida against south florida and central florida being what makes a difference. the south florida poll out of miami-dade shows the president -- >> largest county in the state, 52%-43%. >> that's not a surprise. i will tell you, this next poll, though, is a surprise. >> all right. let's go to virginia. the latest "w
investigation. >>> making it harder for some people to get to the polls. president obama: there's just no quit in america... and you're seeing that right now. over five million new jobs. exports up forty one percent. home values... rising. our auto industry... back. and our heroes are coming home. we're not there yet, but we've made real progress and the... last thing we should do is turn back now. here's my plan for the next four years: making education and training a national priority; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message. >>> as you well know, the election is so close, a handful of votes could decide wh
reading of the polls is the last week had already been going at least slightly in obama's direction. and at least on the first couple of days, from the reaction to what the president did, from the difficulties romney has, this appears to be helping obama some more. and as long as polling stations can open up in places like philadelphia and in northern virginia, then the storm, i think, because he responded well, will end up helping obama more than it hurts him. >> e.j. dionne, always good to have you with us on "the ed show." thanks so much. the romney camp says they'll win next tuesday. the latest poll numbers, folks, they tell just a different story. bob shrum weighs in next. >>> later, it's been three weeks, count 'em, three weeks since mitt romney the candidate actually took a question from reporters? >>> and hurricane sandy is highlighting his transparency problems. dnc chair debbie wasserman schultz is here with reaction tonight. stay with us. brp b >>> thanks for joining us tonight. now, to hear the romney campaign tell the story they're preparing for certain victory on elect
, ohio, right now. our brand new cnn/orc poll shows president obama with a narrow lead in that state 50% to mitt romney's 47%. that's within the sampling error making it still effectively a dead heat. our chief national correspondent john king is joining us right now. he's in ohio as well. john, take us inside these numbers. >> wolf, they are fascinating when you look deep in this poll. the president you just showed he's here in ohio. governor romney will be here tontd. they expect some 35,000 republicans at his rally. in this part of the state i'm in cincinnati tonight. when you look deep in our poll you see this one will be fought out through the last poll closing on election night. look at these two candidates among independents. governor romney with a slight edge 48% to 46%. again, that's a statistical tie well within the margin of error. the auto bailout is one of the things the president thinks will help him here in ohio. you heard him mention that in this speech. look at this in the industrial northern part of the state, across northern ohio where you have many auto-related direc
in the key state of ohio. today the latest cnn poll shows obama with a very slight edge there, but there's everything to play for. today, the last jobs report before election day was released. unemployment ticking up to 7.9%, but at the same time, 171,000 jobs were created. no surprise, both candidates reacted differently to the news. >> today, our businesses have created nearly five and a half million new jobs. this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today, we learned that it's actually 7.9% and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> mitt romney earlier today. you're looking at live pictures now from westchester in ohio, where rudy giuliani, the former mayor of new york, has given a blistering speech attacking barack obama. in a few minutes, he will be on this show live and exclusive to tell me why he feels so strongly why the president should leave the offic
interesting that romney campaign has taken a turn there. latest polling shows president obama up four points. jim, stay where you are. we'll get back to you. christine, i want to ask you about something jim said. it is such a hot button in this state, this idea that american companies are making vehicles in china. why don't they just make them in america and ship them over? this shows a fundamental misunderstanding of the entire auto industry. for decades and decades and decades american auto companies have made cars in the countries or the regions in which they sell them. i want to remind americans, when they buy toy oat yaz and hond yaz and hyundais and they buy nissans in america that are assembled here, back home somebody says why you shipping our jobs to america? so it really shows a fundamental, fundamental misunderstanding by romney camp to try and get under people's nails about jobs. they may make jeeps in china for the chinese audience. general motors does the same thing. this is not news. >> this shows you, ali, that auto making and making things is in the dna of modern america. it
/orc poll of likely voters shows president obama with a three point lead. now that is inside the statistical margin of error. so that's about as close as it can get. and nbc "wall street journal" poll gives the president a six point lead in ohio. a little better for obama. still very close. now obama may be the top prize for the candidates right now l are other important battleground states. we'll take through over the course of the next hour in a way that only cnn can. john avalon and i traveled more than 1800 miles on cnn's battleground bus tour as the race for the white house reaches its conclusion. no mat wrer i ter where i go, t economy is the most important issue in this election. i've been traveling with john avalon. he joins me now as does my good friend christine romans. she joins me from washington. jim acosta from did he back to you, iowa, where mitt romney just landed. brianna keeler is in milwaukee, wisconsin, traveling with president obama. let's start here in ohio. the state has a very complex economy. here's some of what we've been hearing from voters on this trip. >> just a
and in the final weekend of campaigning, predz obama and mitt romney are hitting the trails hard in those pivotal battleground states. romney speaking a couple hours from now in port smith, new hampshire. >>> as you head to the polls, you may see officials from the justice department. 780 federal monitors are being dispatched to enforce laws. the group in 51 jurisdictions and 23 states on tuesday. if you want to file a voting rights complaint, you can contact your local attorney general's office. >>> we got the final employment report and results were mixed. 171,000 jobs added in the month of october. but, the unemployment rate ticked up marginally to 7.9%. in a tight presidential race, the candidates each gave their own take. governor romney called the numbers, a "sad reminder of the state of our economy." president obama said we had, "made real progress, but still have further to go." >>> there are reports now that at least 22 million gallons of gas are headed to the northeast to help relieve shortages following superstorm sandy. it's made for some long lines as residents wait hours to gas up t
research group poll has obama edging romney 49% to 487%. people in nevada say they are starting to see signs of recovery, believe it or not. cnn's miguel marquez picks up the story from high above, high above the las vegas skyline. >> reporter: here we are, top of the stratosphere in vegas, baby. as this county goes, so goes nevada! in a city that fell harder and faster than just about any place in the country. this better be a very close election. the stratosphere, like all vegas, suffered the worst of the recession. at some point you had to make a decision, either go big or stay home and shut down. >> that was sort of the thesis, yeah. >> reporter: the vegas landmark sunk more than $20 million into upgrades including a new restaurant, oh, and that sky jump thing. most importantly, more than 100 new jobs. do you think las vegas is through the worst of it? >> it feels like it. i drive to work every day and i see stuff going on that i haven't seen for a little while. >> reporter: things like construction and homes being built in a place that once had a nation's highest foreclosure rate.
. >> reporter: according to a marquette poll released president obama is up in wisconsin by eight points over mitt romney among likely voters but when you look at the people who are both likely to vote and follow politics, that lead shrinks to only two. both sides acknowledge that getting out the vote is crucial and a huge part of doing that is finding the volunteers willing to keep calling and knocking until the election. >> is this your life now until a week from tomorrow? >> we're going to keep going up until the very end, keep making calls and doing doors until the polls close. >> you're out there. i'm going to be out there more. >> ted rowlands joins us now from racine, wisconsin. how is the race looking there? >> reporter: we mentioned a poll by marquette university that had the president up eight points, a cnn poll released after that has the lead a little bit more narrow, within the margin of error. both sides agree that this is a -- an election that could go either way. the state of wisconsin could go either way and the difference will be who can get their base out to vote. >> well,
journal"/marist poll shows president obama with a two-point lead over mitt romney. that is well within the margin of victory, so basically we'll call it a dead heat, but when you go beyond the polls you see voters waiting for hours so they can cast their votes. there's been a lot of controversy over early voting in florida this year. it started a week ago and early voting ends day. our john zarella joins me now from plantation, florida. john, good morning. i understand that you voted yesterday. how long did you have to wait? >> reporter: yeah, you know, i did, and i'm really glad i voted yesterday because when i voted the line here was just back over there. i think, dominic, you can give them a shot of where i was standing, and it took me from the time i got in line to the time i walked out the door, two hours and ten minutes to vote, so if you look at where the line is now, which winds all the way around and down there, it's, we estimate, about 700 deep, and maybe about a four-hour wait for the folks to vote. it's nice out and a festive atmosphere. everybody is happy. if it gets hotte
. you talk to the obama campaign, they'll point to that marquette poll and they'll say it's more accurate. it seems likie internal polls ae in between the two. the bottom line, while he has a lead that is significant, you have to pay attention to it, it's not quite comfortable. that's why you're seeing president obama here today. we saw joe biden here last week. but paul ryan was here yesterday. mitt romney will be here tomorrow. bill clinton last night and this morning. there is a lot of surrogate traffic and part of that is because early voting is under way right now and goes on through tomorrow. and both sides are really trying to energize people and get them out to the polls during this week. >> brianna, i'm looking behind you. just quickly peek over the back of your shoulder to your left, air force one just came right into a perfect view for us. thank you very much. but i want to ask you, this was a campaign stop in green bay that was really supposed to happen tuesday, which the president cancelled because of the storm and emergency work that he needed to do. so what did the
the enthusiasm rate. i was just in ohio this week and i can tell you, looking at the polls, you thought obama's going to win it but if you talk to people on the ground, they say that's not the feeling we have here, especially the republicans. they're pretty confident they will have a big turnout coming from the evangelicals, for example. >> gloria, with unemployment numbers out today, obviously doesn't seem like the numbers have had much of an impact on the polls one way or another the past few months. is there any reason to think this month might be different so close to election day? >> no, i don't think it's really going to have any impact, because you can look into these numbers today and you can take out of it -- each side can take something out of it, a slight uptick in the unemployment rate. mitt romney can point to that and say you know what, things are not going in the right direction. the president can say there was more job creation than some anticipated, that this is a recovery, that is continuing, that it is not sporadic, that he has created five and a half million jobs. so you k
is handing out so-called obama phones in order to get votes. >> we've got to drag people to the polls. that's what they are doing. you don't have to offer them cell phones like they are doing but, by golly, take people to the polls. >> it's just not the romney supporters, today the campaign is trying to spook us just in time for halloween and a bag of dirty tricks. joining me now is president of the service union and jamal simmons a. dr simmons, a democratic, strategist. let me start with you, mary kay. are we going to see a lot more of these dirty tricks in the next six days, in your opinion, mary kay? >> yes, we are, for the reason thaw just said. they cannot repeal on voters for the economy that works for everybody. instead, they are going to distract voters by esending out these ridiculous lies and we're not having it. we have a ground game that is going to unite people to exercise their right to vote and we intend to drive a vote out that will win for the president on election day. >> now, i've been all over the country with the nonpartisan voter protection stuff and i see your grounds
could play the deciding role, with 55 million of them eligible to vote. according to a recent pugh poll, president obama is whomping, i believe that's a technical term, mitt romney by 25 points among that group. in many respects, the election has become a choice between the past versus the future, a choice between a bygone era and a brave new world. joy reed explores this dynamic, writing it takes for granted that billy might have two moms or two dads, or that the ceo might be a she. it could care less if guys serve in the military. it can't imagine abortion or conservatives being illegal. i thinks madmen is a good tv show, but so is the walking dead. cecil richards is the president of planned parenthood. and today she is joining us behalf of the obama campaign. part of my favorite thing is how much i get to see you. thanks for joining the program, as always. >> thanks for having me back. >> cecil, the numbers on women voting in this election, and the number of women who are single, i quoted that, 25% is a shocking margin. i wonder what you make of that. and then let's talk about this g
're all leaning toward obama. we showed another poll yesterday showing the president leading ohio, back to ohio, by five points. point-blank, gloria borger, five days left, is time running out for mitt romney? >> sure. there's five days left f. you look out those polls, while most of them are within the margin of error, he would like to have it flipped the other way. having said that, time's also running out for the president. look. this is a tight race. it's tighter than a lot of people ever expected. it's come down to those handful of states. and what it really comes down to is getting the voters to the polls, brooke. that's why there's an emphasis on early voting because you can bus your voters who you know vote for you and get them to vote early. but it's a matter of intensity and enthusiasm and, you know, when you talk to the romney people, they're complaining the polls based on the turnout of 2008 and not the same enthusiasm this time on the democratic side. you talk to the democrats and they say they've been adjusted so, you know, my head is exploding with all of their different
in a bit. >> they are. the one thing that stood out to me is the washington post abc poll, 48.56% obama, 48.49 romney. i mean, literally, negligable and even in the swing states it's too close to call gli don't think that's true. i think it's true on some of the national polls but they are not as relevant as the swing state polls and you're seeing incremental increases every day in favor of the president. so i think, you know, honestly, it's going to be a good day on tuesday for the president and therefore for the country. >> how damaging, kelly ann, was mayor bloomberg's endorsement of president obama? he's been holding often dorsing anybody. he's been well known to be an independent. he came out very strong and said president obama he believes in climate change and mitt romney doesn't. he also attacked mitt romney for where i believe the vulnerable built is, the endless flip-flopping. it's not a good thing that he endorses a former republican mayor, somebody totally influential, endorses a democratic president. >> he's been a republican and democrat and an independent. so i guess he has t
